Porini Mara Camp
Porini Mara Camp is the only safari camp set in Ol Kinyei Conservancy – an exclusive 17,500 acre wilderness of open plains, forests and rivers, set aside as a wildlife sanctuary for a wide variety of species including big cats. It lies in a unique and beautiful setting under yellow-barked Acacia trees along the banks of the Laetoli river. The camp contains just six spacious guest tents and has a friendly feel, with each tent being comfortably furnished with en suite facilities of hot showers and flush toilet. The chef uses fresh ingredients to prepare high quality meals and even home-baked bread.
Activities at Porini Mara Camp include morning, afternoon and night game drives in the Ol Kinyei conservancy and in the adjacent Naboisho conservancy with their expert safari guides. Here you can experience the wilderness without the presence of other tourist vehicles. All day game drives into the Masai Mara National Reserve are also on offer - especially popular if you wish to head deep into the Masai Mara National Reserve to witness one of the famous river crossings. Bush breakfasts can be enjoyed in the conservancy with bush walks with a Masai tracker another highlight. Being on foot allows you a completely different perspective on the fauna and flora. There’s also an opportunity to enjoy a hot air balloon safari at extra cost.
